I am still hard at work on my UFOs. For the month of February, Judy chose #10 which is a mini quilt that I already finished in January. So I have a month to work on anything that I want... actually because of my trip in March I have to start and finish my quilt for the DQS10 this month.
While grocery shopping last week, I happened to look at the clearance isle of football stuff that was reduced since football is over here. While browsing the clearance I found a poly/cotton blend pillow case that will be a perfect center for the Broncos quilt! Yeah, I have pulled out those blocks and they are on my short list.
I am still undecided about the String Swap Blocks, because they are just brightly colored string blocks which I have gotten over already. I think I just need to choose a color and sash them into a top and get it DONE. Maybe aqua or white... hmmmm....
The Variation Stars top is still at the quilters, but I have the binding cut and ironed already. I also still need to get a photo of this.
I am half way done binding the Halloween quilt. It turned out awesome! I used a new quilter Eagle Mounting Quilters and they did a great job on this quilt. I love the lime green thread she chose!
Three of the mini quilts got done in January. Only one left... the Rainbow Rail Fence Mini and I have no idea how to quilt it!
I also finished binding the Brown Bag Challenge Quilt and am looking for a good place to donate it. It is way to girly for this household of boys.
I also started two new projects... a lime/gray quilt for which I have been collecting fabrics over a year and a batik quilt made with some green/blue batiks a friend generously gave to me. Little did she know my unlike of batiks...
I have been pretty sick the last few days and am hoping to get well by Friday because that is the next Sweatshop night at my LQS and I obviously still have lots to do!
